Being a Young Refugee CEO in the US

Kat Graham x Epimonia Interview

Kat Graham x Epimonia Interview

We had the honor and opportunity to interview Goodwill Ambassador for UNHCR, @katgraham. She's used her platform as an actress, artist, dancer, and producer to amplify the voices of refugees around the World. 


"I think there’s a huge misconception about refugees. I come from refugees, you were a refugee, you know we’re not victims. Our parents were not victims. First of all, nobody who is forced to flee chooses to be a refugee. A lot of refugees come from incredibly stable situations – they are shop owners, they are doctors, they are regular people like you and me. They’re not expecting or necessarily wanting a handout, they want a hand up. Just give them the tools that they need so that they can rebuild their life and eventually go back home or become resettled. Just give them the tools that they need so that they can live a dignified life."

Finding Your Own Way to Help with Teem Khan

In today’s episode we spoke with London-based refugee and gender fluid-fashion stylist, Teem Khan. Teem told us about how he first became interested in fashion, what affected his decision to pursue gender fluid fashion, and how he's personally been affected by the UK's ban on asylum seekers getting jobs, which Teem is actively fighting against right now with the Fight the Ban campaign. 

Visit Teem's shop at to buy clothes or purchase a Teem Khan face mask which will donate a face mask to an asylum seeker at, support the Fight the Ban campaign in the UK to allow asylum seekers to work at and follow Teem's store on Instagram at to continue to follow Teem's journey.
